Endgame scheduled for September release

Heavy metal lords Megadeth will release their new album Endgame later this year.

The twelfth album from the snarling, furious thrashers will be released in September.

Guitarist Dave Mustaine said: “This new album is my proudest moment since the famous (or infamous) Rust in Peace album.

"With this album I am also very excited to be introducing my new lead guitarist Chris Broderick to the world. I have always felt lucky to have had top shredders in that position but after touring with Chris in support of my last album, I couldn’t wait to get into the studio and see what he could do.”

Mustaine also hinted that the new record carried a political message influenced by the terms of former President George Bush.

“Thematically, I’ve never been known to be a silent bystander in a world that needs our participation. As more is revealed about our former President’s legacy, a little-known yet staggeringly frightening document which was signed into law, named ‘Endgame,’ has been uncovered", he said. "The album Endgame is the most energetic music offering I have penned in over a decade and is far more believable than knowing someone signed Endgame - the document - into law.

"The album is also the perfect ‘ass-kicking’ music to listen to once you are done reading the aforementioned document!”
